Hey all,
This will be my first gaming pc after coming from a long line of consoles. As such, i dont really know too much about hardware in PC's so i am hoping you will be able to help me.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 3 months from now, will be paid hald by myself, half from family as a christmas present.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. Nothing else.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard and mouse (unless very cheap as the ons i use arent too good), monitor, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk for a pre-built model which i would prefer, or www.dabs.co.uk for parts

PARTS PREFERENCES: Quad core, GTX260 or higher, 4gb - 8gb RAM

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Something that will look good, but not too expensive. I dont really understand haha.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like it to be good for the future for about 3 years


Thankyou for your time
